About The Talking Heads: Stop Making Sense
In 1984, seven years before director Jonathan Demme would unleash "Hannibal The Cannibal" on us he and Talking Heads frontman David Byrne gave us a beast of a different nature.
The film opens with a skinny and geek'ish Byrne carrying a boombox onto an empty stage. He is joined by fellow band mates as each song progresses, and then by the supporting players, including keyboardist Bernie Worrell (Parliament-Funkadelic), until the stage if full of song and entertainment.
By the time the "Suit" makes it's appearance during "Girlfriend is Better," you can't help but dance in your seat... or better yet the aisles.
Often heralded as one of the best examples of the concert film genre, Stop Making Sense is a brilliant work of art and live concert combined.Map & Directions
